Introducing the Paper Copy of our Book and a little giveaway to go along with it!

Words cannot describe. I’m so excited to say that our book is finally available for purchase, and you can get a copy of it right here. We’re both ready to burst, after all the work that went into getting it written, polished, and published, and now we are getting ready to promote it and get it into people’s hands!

The story is really adorable; for kids aged 3-7, it is the tale of a forlorn little bug who learns what it means to be special, and her adventurous discovery that her uniqueness already is special. Children will love the journey of the little red and black bug, the cheery images, and the countable bugs that match each page number. If you’d like to pick up a copy of the book for yourself, we’d be more than honored and would greatly appreciate your support of our project. You can click here to get a copy on Amazon.

If you’re into ebooks, you can download a copy for a buck right here, (and you don’t need a special ereader or anything- you can read it right on your ipad/smartphone/laptop/whatever the heck you crazy kids are into these days). That’s been available for some time now, but if you prefer a paper copy, that is new- BRAND NEW!

As a promotional effort, Caren and I are sponsering a Rafflecopter giveaway
of a little gift basket. There’s a small collection of printable coloring sheets, bookmarks and a playset (which are actually going to be available for you right here, if you’d like), but along with that, we’re offering a bunch of other goodies like refrigerator magnets, stickers printed with our images, a pair of handmade house slippers with a cute little ladybug stitched on them, some other miscellaneous ladybug paraphernalia and of course a copy of the book. I’m gonna post pictures of the stuff over the next few days on this blog.

Since self-publishing is such a crowded market, we thought this would be a good way to thank you for passing the word along to your friends that we’re doing this. If you’d like to enter the drawing for this (and earn our eternal gratitude), here’s what you can do to enter:

  • like one (or both) of our pages on Facebook (right here)
  • tweet about this
  • comment on this post

It’ll tell you just what to do. The winner will be drawn randomly in two weeks on November 26.
***This giveaway is only available to people living in the contiguous United States, so sorry for any inconvenience to anyone 😦

Good luck, and THanK yOu, ThaNk yOU, THaNK yOu!!!

    I loved the ebook version and have read it to the grandkids many times. So glad you’re in print now and just in time for the holidays! Guess one of the gifts they will be getting this year! πŸ˜‰

    I would share this book with my younger brother.. now he is actually 15 right now (not 3-7… lol) but he (and anyone else, for that matter) can always use a big reminder to BE YOURSELF and stay original. : ) I think my brother who is in high school (a place/time were peer pressure is especially strong) would feel very special to get something like this from his older sister in college (who is obsessed w/ lady bugs! It would remind him of me, lol)

    • kirinjirafa Said:

      Oh thanks so much for visiting and for your kind words πŸ™‚
      I hope you enjoy the book πŸ™‚
